Event description

Description

Let your kids run wild this summer holiday!


What's in store...

Two days of fun in the forest for 5-8 year olds* on Wednesday 7th & Thursday 8th August (10am-3pm) in a private woodland and meadow in Chew Stoke.

Over the two days children will have the opportunity to safely use a range of hand-tools for green-wood working, crafting something to take home; cook snacks over the fire; use a fire-striker to light a fire, play woodland games, get physical on the rope swings, rope ladders, hammock; get messy in the mud kitchen and explore!

It's the perfect antidote the the school classroom!

As Forest School leaders, we ensure the days are as child-led as possible - encouraging the children to explore, play, make and learn, with whatever sparks their interest, both independently and together as a group.


Parent feedback:

"Flo had great fun and chatted non stop about each day when she got home. She is very proud of her achievements, particularly the cooking, learning to saw wood and make a necklace, the campfire, popcorn and making the den - she clearly really enjoyed herself. Very inspirational..."


* Age-range

This event is for children aged 5-7 years old however we do welcome siblings that fall slightly outside this age-bracket (NB. all 4 year olds must be 'school age'). We always work with a maximum of 12 children and a small age-range to ensure that activities are made hands-on and achievable for the whole group.

FAQ

Do I drop children off or do parents stay?

Parents drop children off for both days. Timings of both days are 10am-3pm. The day is run by Claire Rosling (founder of Earthwise) and an assistant both of whom are DBS checked.

Are 1 day tickets available?

We design our Forest Fun experiences as two day events so that the group are able to bond with each other, with us as facilitators and with the woodland around them. There is a profound difference in the way the group approach each other and the environment when they attend for two consecutive days - we see the value in this and so make two day bookings a priority. If there is availability then we may open up one-day bookings a week or two before the event. Please register your interest by emailing claire@getearthwise.co.uk if you are unable to commit to both days.


Toilet Facilities

We'll be out in the wild woods without any permanent toilet facilities and so will be providing a temporary, private (and hygienic) latrine that we will show children how to use. A great skill to learn for wild camping! Hand washing facilities are provided.
